Local Government Distributive Funds Information
Municipalities receive a percentage of the total income tax revenues the state receives for the purpose of providing local government services to its residents. For the Village of Lemont, approximately 20% of its general fund revenues come from this source. In 2011 when the income tax was increased, municipalities did NOT receive the same percentage of this additional revenue. Regardless of the income tax rate going forward, municipalities (including Lemont) are united to ensure that the percentage of revenues going to local governments returns to the original percentage.
